Peekamoose J-style guitar

Peekamoose Model 3
It’s always interesting to look at variations of popular guitar shapes and what direction creative builders and companies take them in. Well here’s an interesting guitar based on the J-style by a company called Peekamoose guitars. I had not heard of Peekamoose until reading [this post at stratoblogster] about this guitar.

Here’s the details on the J-style guitar which Peekamoose calls their “Model 3”. (their Model 3 web page)

Model-3 basics

  • 22 fret, quarter sawn, rock maple neck
  • Rosewood Maple, or Ebony fret board
  • All necks have their frets dressed on our Plek machine.
  • Truss-Rod access at the headstock
  • Ash body

Hardware & Appointments:

  • Tusq® bridge saddles
  • Tusq® nut
  • Sperzel® locking tuners
  • Dunlop® Strap Locks (traditional style)
  • Nickel Neck Plate and Stainless Screws
  • Ivoroid Knobs
  • Three-layer Tortoise or Vint-Mint pick guard and back plate
  • Peekamoose custom spec pickups by Seymour Duncan
  • Peekamoose, full coax, isolated wiring
  • Dual sound switching for each pickup and a phase reverse switch
  • Optional 250K or 500K volume taper (specify when ordering)
  • High pass filter standard on all hi-impedance models

Seems like it would be a great Jagmaster-ish guitar.

If you’ve played or own one of these please let us know what your thoughts on it.
